You will find below one of my previous post regarding PPTP to secure a 
WLAN connection using OPT1 (external Access Point). The OPT1 is on a 
10.112.x.x subnet.  It's very easy to setup. You may want to replace 
OPT1 with your WLAN card.

As soon as the user authenticates, he gets a virtual IP address within 
the LAN subnet so I don't have to setup any static route. The only rules 
I used are :

--> for OPT1 :        (this is here to only allow PPTP traffic)
GRE * * * *                                    
TCP * * * 1723

--> for PPTP
* * * * *

The other settings are :

OPT1 : bridge:none
            ip address :

PPTP clients
* * * * *

OPT1 interface
GRE * * * *
TCP * * * 1723

LAN * * * * *

-   LAN to
-   OPT1 to

Enable : yes
Server address :
Remote address range :


Under Windows, you can create PPTP account (new network connection with 
the same login/password)

I hope this will help you.  This was really easy to setup so you should 
give it a try.
